Violent crime Is crippling Minnesota

The city of Shakopee, Minnesota, is a relatively quiet suburban community of 40,000 people that lies about 17 miles southwest of Minneapolis. Last week, in broad daylight, the community's tranquility was shattered when a 55-year-old woman was brutally murdered on a city street in broad daylight and, according to gruesome footage circulated on social media, beheaded.

Milley, left miss real threats

In recent testimony before Congress, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that he was studying "white rage" in order to understand it and that the biggest threat to this country is from right-wing extremists ("If critical race theory is correct, is America worth defending?" Web, June 29). It sounds as if Milley has been reading Robin DiAngelo's "White Fragility." The premise of that book is patently absurd. DiAngelo posits that having white skin automatically makes a person an oppressor and a racist, and being born Black automatically makes a person oppressed and a non-racist. This is contradicted by evidence all around us.

Cuomo must pay for crimes

I sat with anger, confusion and questions mounting as the New York attorney general reported on the results of the investigation into Gov. Cuomo -- allegations of sexual abuse of women, many on Cuomo's own staff ("N.Y. Gov. Cuomo sexually harassed multiple women, investigation finds," Web, Aug. 3). I was angry that so many had to be the targets of Cuomo's immoral and illegal behavor. I was confused about why he is not being arrested or having charges filed against him for clear violation of federal and state laws. Reporters at the press conference must have shared my questions, for they continually asked the attorney general how such charges were not in evidence.

Left two-faced on government trust

What is most galling about the Democrats' obstruction of investigations into the 2020 election fraud is the undisguised two-faced nature of it ("Dominion Voting Systems, Maricopa County reject subpoenas in Arizona election audit," Web, July 26).

The two Americas: Collectivists vs. individualists

- The Washington Times

If there were a line that could be drawn to show the precise crossing into America's demise, then the mental figurings that form the accusatory and hostile arguments against those who are reluctant to take the COVID-19 vaccine are it. It's the crossing from individualism into collectivism.

How much will Americans allow?

It boils my blood when I see that there are likely a mask mandate and additional lockdown coming -- while the Biden administration continues to keep the southern border open, allowing for a national superspreader of COVID-19.
